This handsome seven-year-old mini Aussie Dachshund is playful, friendly,and energetic. He loves exploring the wooded trail behind the facility, checking out all the different smells back there. Maxx is a pro in the play yard, too; he plays fetch with his rope toy and brings it right back to you. He then sits patiently and attentively waiting for you to throw it again. Maxx loves being with people and is always sad to go back to his kennel after walks and play time with the volunteers, so we make sure he gets plenty of treats to make it a positive experience. We know he`ll be a happy boy once he`s in a home and he knows that heading to his bed doesn`t mean being left alone. Maxx will make a great walking and snuggling companion for someone l8 or older. As one volunteer says, `He`s a smart cookie`.

Maxx really enjoys people and is quite playful. He has a great personality.. He is a little bit opinionated. He has a gorgeous soft coat with flowing fur.

Adoption Information

Clatsop County Animal Control & Shelter reserves the right to deny adoption to anyone at any time for any reason. In order to do what is best for each animal, they are adopted on a first come first served basis at the shelter to qualified recipients only. A drivers license or state ID must be shown at the shelter.

All animals from the shelter will be spayed or neutered before they leave. We spay and neuter as many animals as we are able to before adoption to make the process faster. No animal will leave the shelter without being spayed and neutered. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Please allow yourself enough time to spend time with the animal and do the application and interview. The application and interview take approximately 20 minutes to complete. To adopt an animal you need to fill out an application and be interviewed. All household members will need to meet the animal prior to adoption. Landlord approval is needed if you are a renter.

Dog adoptions have a few more steps. We require that you bring in any current dog either living with you or that will be a frequent visitor for a meet and greet. After this, if the application is approved a home inspection will be scheduled. This is done within two business days. Our goal is to make sure that we find our animals their forever home.

Animal Adoption Fees vary so please call the shelter for adoption fees.
